Here's an alternate history thought, since today is Holy Thursday, or as it has been traditionally called, Maundy Thursday:
If Jesus had been arrested the night of the last supper - after he did the feet washing but before the Seder was served....
1. Would the Christian church have focused more on service to the poor rather then temporal power, since that was the last lesson Jesus imparted?
2. Instead of a communion supper,would the center of the Mass have become the foot washing ceremony?
This is one of my best ever alternate histories.
